Re: GET MOT REMINDERS

Excellent stuff, well spotted!

Just a note - you can only register a vehicle if it has a current MOT, my VX800 doesn't yet so didn't go through. Soon to be rectified...

Re: Xmas day ride out

NIce one! Love the Lakes, fantastic roads and great scenery, no matter what the weather.

I only managed to escape for about an hour today on the old XT in the Peak District - very few people about so pretty much had the roads and trails to myself, just the way I like it! ;)

Re: XT Weather

Like Steve says, it's great when you're out in fresh snow. The day the photo was taken it was very slippery and to be honest, any of the 4x4s would have no trouble out maneuvering the ol' XT. Going up slight inclines had to be taken with absolute minimal power cos it would just spin and fish tail a ...

Re: Winter Biker?

Ruined many a decent bike riding on salty winter roads, what's our obsession with salt ffs? Dispatch riding was a year round thing and having done that for about 8 years and freezing my balls off, I did wonder if I'd end up having knee trouble cos of frozen joints on long runs but so far so good. Do...

Re: Suzuki freewind XF650 Any good??????

Very underrated bike, the XF650. I bought mine to compliment a ZZR1400 I had and certainly didn't expect to be wowed by it. Simple single air cooled carb'd engine that keeps going on and on. Returns up to 75 mpg treated very gently down to 60 mpg if thrashed. Very smooth between 50 - 80 mph and hand...

Re: I'll ride slower when they stop claiming for porno

I live in Buxton so know exactly where you're coming from regarding silly speed limits in Derbyshire & surrounding areas. Don't mind if it really is for safety but, let's face it, it's more for easy revenue. 50 mph speed limits on most of the roads around here are a total joke. No wonder people are ...
